Heirloom Pork Breeds Used: Berkshire, Duroc, Yorkshire, Landrace, Tamworth
Farmers of Heritage Foods utilize heritage breeds and lines of swine in their compassionately raised production systems. Hogs that produce the pork for the Heritage program never receive antibiotics and are fed a vegetarian diet throughout their lives.
Heirloom animals used in the Heritage Foods program were bred over time to develop traits that made them particularly well-adapted to local environmental conditions. Unlike breeds used in the more industrialized models that are bred to gain weight quickly and yield meat protein with the least amount of feed inputs, our heirloom lines are selected for hardiness, immunity and high meat quality, are generally better adapted to withstand disease and survive in more natural environmental conditions, and their bodies can be better suited to living on pasture or bedded housing. Our heirloom breeds and lines have these unique traits important for sustainable farms.
These livestock breeds and lines also serve as an important genetic resource to be shared among our members. By raising heirloom hogs, our sustainable farmers not only maintain variety within our livestock populations, they also help to preserve valuable traits within the species so that future breeds can endure these conditions.
Processed with Care
All of our products are processed in our own processing facilities. And that means our fresh pork products are simply pork — no added ingredients to enhance flavor or tenderness.
